Well, after my recent move I was hardly in the mood to go to a "Quilter's Estate Sale" but you know I just couldn't resist. A gal I work with told me about it, so yesterday at noon, she and I went to Owasso, OK to this sale. The sale was in a large barn. Loads of stuff. Some very unique findings. I was so disiciplined I surprised myself. Most of the bulk of the fabric was already gone. We were told the Guild members arrived at 6:30 and bought huge amounts of fabric for 1.00 a yard. When we got there, there were still 7 sewing machines left, loads of fabrics, embroidery floss, UFO inpackages with everything needed to make the quilt. Amazing, this lady was amazing. I was so tempted to purchase some "Tatting supplies" that she had, I am really not a tatter, even tho I taught myself from watching viedos on YouTube. She had the most unusual little longated spools that she kept her tatting thread on. But, I resisted I did buy a black & white quilt kit she had going, pattern, fabric which she already had cut, etc.the mock Double Wedding Ring pattern and a little Metal Sewing tin (I don't think it was old, but really cute)
anyway.....loads of stuff, this gal spent a fortune. And there really was a lot of fabric left, but she and I really didn't have the same taste in fabrics. I know the quilting world will surely miss this lady and she will be happy to know loads of quilters got her stuff.
